Social Media Infographic Shows Organic Search Results
What is it that increases the organic search listings? The awesome team at TastyPlacement took extensive time to research the answer to that question and this social media infographic demonstrates those results.
With six similar web sites (one being the "control" web site) and different cities, TastyPlacement set out to test different strategies. They were not random in their approach, but rather used defined metrics. But, at the same time, they used "ordinary people" like you and me as the audience that participated in the social media viral test case. They solicited help from friends, family, associates, in the same way that you or I would do with our endeavors.
In each case (Facebook, Google+, Twitter), TastyPlacement determined a certain metric (i.e. number of shares, etc.) to reach and then measured the organic search results. The control case had no social media activity at all, to use as a comparison.
Google Is Ahead
Not really surprisingly, the Google+ votes were very helpful in defining these Google organic results. Interestingly, Twitter did not fair as well, at the bottom of the list. See for yourself, in the social media infographic, above.
So, does this affect how you will move forward in your social media strategy?
